TUCSON, Ariz. - Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' husband says she's doing so well that she insisted on giving him a 10-minute neck massage from her hospital bed.

In an interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer that will air Tuesday, astronaut Mark Kelly says the gesture shows that his wife is improving and that her spirit and their personal bond remain
strong.

Kelly told Sawyer that he reminded Giffords she's in intensive care and needed her rest.

But the act was typical for her to look out for others.

Kelly also said he would be willing to meet with the parents of suspect Jared Loughner, who is accused of trying to assassinate Giffords.

The attack wounded her and 12 others and killed six.
